Entrepreneur in the Spotlight: David Freeman

The lightbulb moment for H2Coco founder David Freeman occurred when he was at a yoga lesson and his teacher was trying to crack open a coconut to drink.

As his teacher struggled to prise open the hardy ‘nut’ Freeman immediately went aha! What if there was a way to bottle the coconut water to make it more easily accessible?

Six months of research later, Freeman found the solution. He discovered a great source of coconuts, the right sustainable factory and a manufacturer – it was now time to get his coconut water out to the market.

Freeman tells KBB he was inspired to deliver coconut water en masse to consumers as he wanted to provide a healthier beverage solution. Boost Juice was the brand’s first major customer and major retail chains soon followed.

Today H2Coco is found in stores all over Australia.
